Ayre in C Major

Air - Aria



This Ayre in C Major by composer Jeremiah Clarke is very typical of the English Baroque style.

It has a simple A-A-B-B musical form :
  • Mm. 1-8 : Part A (played twice) in the main key of C Major
  • Mm. 9-16 : Part B (played twice) starts in the relative key of A minor, modulating back to C Major in measure 13
Please take note that the editor has included in this score suggested realizations for the ornaments, in this case shakes (the English equivalent to a trill).

Furthermore, the dynamics in this score are editorial, as Clarke himself did not provide any dynamics indication in his manuscript.

Duration : 01:20
